Interview: ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ writer Jack Thorne

by Stuart Wright

It’s just been announced that Star Wars: Episode IX is getting a new writer in Jack Thorne, the man behind scripts for Skins, This Is England and War Book. Thorne is taking over writing of the script for the next Star Wars franchise film from Colin Trevorrow.

Not much is known about the story for Episode IX but I’m sure we’ll know more once Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released on December 15th. In the meantime check out this interview with Thorne, conducted back in 2014 as promotion for the release of Tom Harper’s cinematic adaptation of War Book, in which the scribe talks about how he got started in TV and Film, writing War Book and his own writing style/approach…

Star Wars: Episode IX is due on 21st June 2019.
